Niagara River Salmon Charters
Niagara River Salmon Charters are September through November. The King Salmon is one of the most sought after trophies. Fall in the Niagara region is when King Salmon will move into the river in an attempt to spawn. Niagara River Salmon charters focus on the incredible Lower Niagara River. This is the fishing trip that Captain Steve Drabczyk specializes in, drift fishing. Drift fishing egg skien on a 3-way rig is an extremely effective method here on the Niagara River. This technique puts the rod and reel in the anglers hands. You feel the power of these river monsters first hand. Captain Steve will put you on the Salmon and control the drift of the boat to keep you in the strike zone, All you need to do is hold on for a fight. If you have never done this before, it is a must. These fish will get your blood pumping, The excitement of having a King Salmon or Coho for that matter, on the end of a 7’6″ medium heavy fishing rod, bent in half, ripping off drag, is indescribable, You have too experience this yourself! Not to mention the outstanding table fair a Salmon steak on the grill is. The state record fish is 47lbs 15oz, while 20lb fish are more common. The Coho Salmon, cousin of the Chinook normally does not get as big as the King. However the world record catch of 33 lb. 7 oz. did come from Lake Ontario. These fish follow the Kings up the river to spawn, along with the Steelhead (Rainbow Trout).
Devil’s Hole, 2 mile north of Niagara Falls, is the hotspot for the King Salmon. Steelhead, Brown Trout are not out of the question either. A mixed bag of these species on these fishing charters are common place, especially in November. All fishing equipment including bait, tackle, fish cleaning and packaging are included in this fishing charter adventure. This guided fishing trip leaves from the very scenic Lewiston Landing boat launch in Lewiston, NY @ 115 N.Water Street 14092. Bring your camera, this is a fishing trip you won’t soon forget. LETS GO FISHIN!!!
